Today's Olympic Updates!

One thing that we really hadn't thought about with the Olympic team is that Chris Collins, who is  helping out scouting and as a practice assistant, has an obvious family link to the 1972 game, since his dad, Doug, was a key part of that team and hit the free throws to put the U.S. up by a point with the infamous three seconds to go.

What would it mean to him to win gold now, with his son a part of the effort?  He'll be broadcasting, so we may find out.

On another note, while there is a major push on this time around, with everyone feeling a lot of urgency to win, there's no certainty, and should they lose, Coach K will definitely hear about it.
